Intro Smoke Editor salary range?
on Aug 16, 2005 at 9:38:35 pm

I'm starting training on Smoke and don't know what the going salary rate is for someone with my experience:

12 years broadcast on Avid
10 years compositing on After Effects

Making the jump into a full-time position as smoke artist. I'll be trained on the job.

If anyone can offer any ballpark figures I'd appreciate it...not asking for you to divulge what you make by any stretch - only what you think might be reasonable for me to ask for.

Thanks in advance,

I would say it depends on a lot of factors, but two key ones are the market you're working in and your client following. You've definitely got a good deal of experience and with even a modest following you should be asking for no less than $100k+ per year in a good sized market like NY or LA. Smaller markets may be different, but if you can keep a smoke room booked consistenly any employer should have no problem paying you at least that no matter where you are in the country. Best of luck.
